  • Hey Friends, it's Hilah! Guess what? It's South by Southwest this time in Austin again

  • and that means three things. Awesome free shows, ironic t-shirts galore and day drinking

  • all day free beer usually.

  • All right, so when you're going out and you're going to plan on drinking all the free shit

  • that you can possibly get your hands on all day long and you're out in the sun and you're

  • sweating your balls off you need to bring some snackies with you or else you will die.

  • I know that people think I'll just go out and get some snacks at the Taco stand, but

  • that Taco stand is clogged up with tight-pants wearing fools. So I'm going to make Empanadas

  • today, so I can throw them in my backpack. Then, in a few hours, when all my friends

  • are wasted they're going to be all like, man, these are the best things you ever made for

  • me because they are too drunk to know any better. Boom!

  • [Music]

  • So I'm going to start with my filling first. I'm doing a vegetarian filling, since it's

  • not going to be refrigerated expect for the other beers that are in my backpack. I've

  • got like a ten-ounce package of frozen spinach I think here that I just microwaved and squeezed

  • all the water out that I could because I don't want the water to get them all soggy, there's

  • nothing worse than a soggy empanada. Now, I have a potato that's already been beeled

  • and hoiled, boiled and peeled. Then I'm just going to cube because I want there to be some

  • carbohydrates and stuff in my little snacky. Mix that in there and I'm just going to improv

  • some spices and put in some salt.

  • I've got some, I don't know, that's probably half a teaspoon or so, some cumin seeds and

  • put in a little cinnamon. You can put whatever you want in an empanada; it's awesome in that

  • way because this is just what I happened to have around. I'm going to slice up some cheese

  • and, hopefully, not slice off my finger. This is Oaxaca cheese, which is similar to a mozzarella

  • and I'm just going to make some chunks that I can put in. I think I'll make six empanadas

  • and that means I need six evenish pieces of cheese.

  • I'm going to use a pre made pie crust dough today. Get one, it's like usually it's stored

  • with the biscuits and stuff. It's not already in a pie pan. Then what you get is this because

  • you can always make your own pie crust if you like making something to take to your

  • in-laws house for Thanksgiving, but this is just a bunch of stupid idiots asking you for

  • free food when they're all drunk on beer, so you don't need to give them anything awesome

  • and by stupid idiots I mean my best friends, but really it's good, it's fine, whatever.

  • I'm going to just roll it out though to make it a little thinner, so I'll put my flour

  • down and also wipe off your countertop really good before you do this. If you have a fancy

  • marble slab, then use that, but I don't because I am poor. If you want to buy me a marble

  • slab, that's wicked. So when you're rolling your pie crust you want to start at the middle

  • and pull it out evenly on all sides. It looks pretty good. I'll probably get like empanadas

  • out of each one of these things.

  • I'm just going to use a bowl as my form. Ooh, maybe I can get three; that would be bad ass

  • and just use my little paring knife. God, I hope I'm not screwing up my not cheap countertops

  • by doing this. I'm totally going to get three out of here. Sweet! Now, pull up this and

  • set it aside and you could re-roll it and make more later if you want to. I'm going

  • to start with this. Get this business over here and how you do is like so and maybe a

  • couple of tablespoons. This is probably six inch round, so maybe just two tablespoons

  • of filling.

  • Then a little bit cheese. Fold it over, and I've got a little glass of water here. I'm

  • going to wet my fingertips to make it seal. Get in there cheese. I didn't ask you to come

  • out. You come out in my mouth when I'm ready for you to come out. There, ta-da. I'm just

  • going to crimp it. You can use a fork, maybe I'll do a fork next time to show you people

  • how some other people might do it, but this is how I'm doing it now because I didn't get

  • a fork out earlier.

  • Empanada put it on an ungreased cookie sheet. One time when I was at South by Southwest

  • a couple of years ago and I had been out all day long and I did not know at that time that

  • you should always bring snackies it was probably like 10 o'clock or something and we're all

  • drunk as shit and wandering around from place to place and then were these dudes riding

  • these weirdo bicycles that they made that were like tricycles, but for adults. He wanted

  • to let me ride it, but his was all broken, but anyway he did have a backpack with bread

  • and baloney and American cheese slices. Man, that dude was hit of the party because he's

  • showing up with baloney and cheese sandwiches and everyone's all drunk and ready to eat,

  • so that's going to be this year, but I'm making empanadas.

  • Hey! So, I got my six empanadas. I'm going to take my fork and just poke a couple of

  • holes in the top to let the steam out so that they don't explode everywhere. I have some

  • more stuff left over and I have some more I think I'm going to try to make some and

  • fry and them too, but these are going to go in the oven, 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes,

  • but I'm going to come back and do some fry business.

  • So my beautiful empanadas are out of the oven. I'm going to set them on this cooling rack

  • so that they cool off completely before I put them in my Tupperware because if I put

  • them in while they're hot they're going to get all soggy and weird and then I'll them

  • in my backpack. Then I'll go have fun all day and you can enjoy these anytime you want

  • to make them. Go ahead and make them and then tell me what you did.

  • In the meantime, I'll see you later. Go subscribe to my YouTube channel, please and bye.
